3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Boulder Strong Ale fest 2007. Mix of black raspberry mead and La Folie, apparently. No head, color is a clear orange-red. Aroma is tangy like La, but this is much more dumbed down. Taste is a fast sour, followed by a syrupy raspberry. Light sour finish. Body is thicker, sweet. Seems like every time someone tries to improve upon La, they end up making an inferior product. Leave La Folie alone!

Hand bottle thanks to bill. Pours Hazy brownish-red. Aroma is sour with honey and faint Berry notes. Taste is an improvement over the base mead, with Berry sweetness tamed by funk and sour with mild carbonation. Pretty wild combination that I was happy to try.

Tap at 4th Annual Boulder SourFest (2013). Pour is crystal clear amber/pink with a small white head. Tea, raspberries, sweet honey, somewhat floral, acidic, blueberry, and woody aroma. Taste sweet fruits - raspberries and blueberries - floral honeycomb, tart, oaky and balanced nicely with spice notes. Slight mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very interesting beer and a real treat to try. Nice!

Pours a flat dark red pour with no head. Intense sweetness on the nose of raspberry, vanilla, and honey. There’s a bit of wood and some hints of vinegar. Tastes quite sweet as well. A nice fruit sweetness from the berries, a hint of cherry, and some honey. A nice vanilla character, some wood, and a light acetic tartness in the background and on the finish.

Bottled. A hazy dark red drink (is it a mead or a beer?) with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of honey, lacto, brettanomyces, malt, and berries. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of alcohol, honey, berries, brettanomyces, and honey, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thank pinball for sharing.

Bottle 18 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a hazy amber with a tiny off-white head. Sweet juicy berryish aroma with some honey coming through. Medium body, tart raspberry notes with some honey. Tartish finish. An odd and not entirely pleasant blend. 030612
